Kim Jong-Un warned of an 'annihilating strike' if the US attacks, as the secretive country unveiled ballistic missiles during a display of their military might.

Two new types of ICBM were enclosed in canister launchers mounted on the back of transporter erector launcher trucks as they were paraded in front of crowds during today's festivities.

Experts believe that the new rockets could be liquid-fuelled intercontinental ballistic missiles, or an early prototype as Pyongyang has yet to formally announce it has an operational ICBM

The Mail reports that: the intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM), which Pyongyang claim could travel thousands of miles, increased concerns that the secretive state is preparing for a possible attack on Washington after they were paraded during the country's Day of the Sun celebrations.

Submarine-launched ballistic missiles were also among the military hardware on display for the first time, showing an improving technological capability that could help it evade anti-missile systems.

Kim has accused President Donald Trump of provoking his nation towards armed conflict with a series of increasingly aggressive moves, including sending the USS Carl Vinson to the Korean peninsula.
